tzatziki

This is a bit of a dumbed-down version of tzatziki because I just happened to grab all of these items at the market. Only later did I realize that I had most of the ingredients for this traditional Greek dip. It often calls for some kind of onion (usually shallot) or garlic, and I've seen it prepared with vinegar instead of lemon. This one was light, super tangy, and perfect with warm pita.


Tzatziki

1 pint Greek yogurt
1 hothouse cucumber, unpeeled, chopped or grated
2 tsp chopped dill
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp sea salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper, or to taste

Combine all ingredients and serve.
